Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to answer your question.

I am sorry to hear about your unfortunate situation.

Unfortunately, the only option that your girlfriend might have is to have her attorney file a Motion to Modify the Terms of Probation and to terminate this no contact order, however it would be an uphill legal task if the judge in fact already expressly refused to lift the no contact order.

I wish you the best of luck and please let me know if you have any related follow up questions.
